How Do We See the Poor?
There’s a line from this song that keeps running through my head when it comes to dealing with poverty (see previous post “Grace and Trust in a Fallen World”). A homeless man receives donations from people, but says, “I’d give it all right back to just be looked at like a man” (2:20). Those words were echoing in my mind as I talked with Rick last night. Beyond just giving him money for food, I wanted to give him my attention and treat him with love. God, give me eyes to see.
